Form validation with Form Tools
Form validation is one of those nagging tasks that you don't want to do, but often you have no choice, whether its to counter spam or ensure the form submission contains all necessarily fields.

Form Tools comes bundled with both client- and server-side validation scripts to help simplify the job of adding validation. The two scripts go hand in hand: in many cases, you can simply copy & paste your validation rules from JS to PHP, change the syntax and you have both client- and server-side validation.

The two scripts were written by myself, a long long loooooong time ago. You can learn about them on my site, here:

There are also a couple of Form Tools-specific tutorials to help out:

Of course, you're more than welcome to use your own validation scripts if you're more familiar with something else.

Please use this forum to post all validation-related questions.
